Recap by phillip woo

Cerise Cherry was given a patient ride third from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out and quickened nicely to take control 100m out for the win. He's a proven performer fresh and was suited by the pace. Best Eleven travelled one off in fourth, rallied four deep upon straightening and finished up well to get into the Quinella spot 50m out. Favourite Destined For Glory made his run at the tail of the field as expected, soon straightened with one wider out and was doing his best work late. Go Baby Go was softened up on the lead at the 600m by Leading City, opened up by nearly two lengths at the 200m and was giving way approaching the 100m. He went too quickly. Plunged late, Leading City travelled second in the run and one off the rails, attacked the leader at the 600m and only held his ground over the final 200m, despite a move to blinkers. Rich Tapestry enjoyed the box-seat run but came up flat in the straight. El Zonda settled midfield and on the rails, straightened three deep and never was a factor.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (003)-THE HKSAR CHIEF EXECUTIVE'S CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 1 - 1200Metres

From the outside barrier, WAH MAY STAR was taken across behind runners shortly after the start and then for the majority of the race travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, K C Leung stated that he had been instructed to be positive on LEADING CITY in the early stages and obtain a forward position.

He said it was felt that WAH MAY STAR, from the outside barrier, may press forward and if this did eventuate, he should allow that horse to cross LEADING CITY and take a trailing position.

He said after beginning awkwardly and shifting out shortly after the start and bumping the hindquarters of CERISE CHERRY, he rode his mount along to take up a forward position as instructed.

He said although it was apparent to him that GO BABY GO, from a wide barrier, was going to cross LEADING CITY, he had to ride his mount along to clear BEST ELEVEN to his inside.

He said after he was able to clear BEST ELEVEN near the 1000 Metres, he steadied his mount to allow GO BABY GO to cross.

He added after the 800 Metres LEADING CITY, which was wearing blinkers for the first time today, commenced to prove difficult to settle and despite his attempts to restrain the horse, LEADING CITY improved its position to be racing closer to GO BABY GO than he had hoped.

He said it was his intention to sit off GO BABY GO, but the manner in which LEADING CITY was racing prevented him from being able to do this.

K C Leung was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he must, wherever possible, ride his mounts in such a manner that they are able to finish off their races.

A veterinary inspection of RICH TAPESTRY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

DESTINED FOR GLORY, CERISE CHERRY and BEST ELEVEN were sent for sampling.
